View Full Version : Telnet Setup

I have be having issues with my PM1. I t shows multiple addresses and 3 PM1's when I only have 1. The APEX can't find the right probe or B/O switches Updated module - didn't fix, updated to 4.12 BETA - didn't fix. i called Neptune and talked to Paul and he said they can fix it but port 23 for Telnet needs to be open. How do I do that?

I use a DYNDNS account to access the APEX since my IP rolls, does that mater?

What local address is he accessing, the APEX or my Laptop on

I have enabled Telnet in Windows7 and allowed access in the firewalls, is that all I need to do for the Windows7 OS?

While Neptune has excelent customer service they aren't available on weekends. I tried to take care of this yesterday but I was on shift (24 hrs) and of course I am back on shift Monday.

Add port forwarding in the router for telnet (port 23) to the Apex IP address. Just like you have now for web access, but using port 23 as the public and private ports.

So this is all I do:

I do a port scan on whatsmyip.org for 23 and is comes up port 23 timed out.

Do I need tech support to remote Telnet to fix this or can i do it (with Reef Central help)?

Your telnet port forwarding *should* work... it looks good. Just for G&G, reboot the router, then try again

Until Tuesday is there a way I can verify the port is accessable from a remote location?

I guess if I understood how would it be access via my dyndns I could check it myself from another PC right?

Disreguard, I changed my DMZ host to 0 and now both port 80 and 23 work.

Good, glad you got it figured out. DMZ Mode and regular port forwarding are mutually exclusive features in most routers... It's use one or the other only.
